    CAT Website Up and Running!!

    Although there is yet much work to be done, we are happy to announce that the CAT website is up and running!  Since setting up User IDs and temporary passwords must be done one by one, we have set up accounts for those members who are attending the reunion first and all others will follow.  However, if we do not have an e-mail address for you, we can not set up your account and you will not be able to access the full website.  Please email us at catwebhelp@gmail.com if you would like to provide an e-mail address. Thank you!

Civil Air Transport (CAT) was an airline founded by Lt. General Claire Lee Chennault, leader of the Flying Tigers, and Whiting Willauer of China Defense Supplies at the conclusion of World War II.  Most of the pilots were former Tigers or other combat pilots from the Asian Theatre.  For the next four decades, CAT, and then its successor, Air America, were primary instruments of American foreign policy in Asia.
